"Dead End" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
Save all your prayers
I think we're lost today
There's no morning after
No one's around to blame

I'm not afraid to bleed
But I will do it for you
We'll start among hypocrites
The melody of our time

So say goodbye to the world
We are the dead that walk the earth

Scream your lungs out
Await for laughter
You don't have to wait forever
It's the next disaster

What decides when you've lost the war
When the first man falls
Or when they erase it all

We're too numb to feel
The downfall starts right here
Hold your breath and swim
Swallowed by life's tear

In times of make believe
No one really seems to care
Maybe I should care less
'Cause I will die too

So say goodbye to the world
We are the dead that walk the earth

Scream your lungs out
Await for laughter
You don't have to wait forever
It's the next disaster

What will it take for us to realize
The more we provoke
Winter will come twice

Save all your prayers
I think we're lost today
There's no morning after
No one's around to blame

Scream your lungs out
Await for laughter
You don't have to wait forever
It's the next disaster

Scream your lungs out
Await for Laughter
You don't have to wait forever
It's the next disaster

    General CommentThe collision of death metal voxs and melodic harmonies in this song is superb, what a song!

    General CommentFirst off, In Flames is definitely the best metal band ever, when it comes to lyrics. Almost no other metal band has such thought-provoking lyrics.
    This song is definitely one of my favorites lyrically.
    Now in my oppinion i think all these people who think it's about natural desasters are wrong. I think it's about the pointlessness of war. There are a lot of "end of the world" references. I think it has to do with a lot of people's (specifically American's) views on war. I love the lines, "In times of make believe, no one really seems to care/Maybe I should care less, cause I'll die too." I think they're refering to people's desire to look away and "make beleive" everything is all-right. They have to force themselves not to care so they aren't so torn up about it inside. but looking away is just going to bring the end of the world/nuclear winter/etc.

    there's a ton of minutia i could go into but i'll just leave it with my technical critique. Not one of their best song musically, but the flow goes with the theme and the lyrics are extremely powerful. thats why it's one of my favorites of theirs.

    General CommentI'm very pleased with this whole new album.
    they really accomplished what they promised,
    a more uptempo beat,
    but it still harkens back to the older days.
    to me most of these songs sound alot like clayman and whoracle. but thats just me.
    nice work.
    and i cant wait to see them live in the Come Clarity tour

    General CommentThis is about man's continued abuse of his environment in spite of the fact that it appears to be lashing back.

    General CommentGreat song.

    Rather than "We are the dead-care watchers," I think it's "We are the dead that walk the earth." Not only does it make sense, it sounds exactly right.

    General CommentThe female vocals are sung by swedish singer Lisa Miskovsky, and yes, although I´m not her biggest fan, she makes this song brilliant :)
    Plus Lisa is a talanted snowboard rider, she gains much respect from me there ;)

    The whole new album is great, I´m gonna buy it as soon as I get the money needed :)
